Roaring Brook Wild Trout

Roaring Brook is a wild brown trout management area. It is a beautiful freestone stream, with many deep plunge-pools and log runs of pocket water. I spent a recent morning hunting for some of the streams residents. In the lower part of the stream I was successful only in hooking chubs. When I reached a part of the stream that descended a sizable elevation and changed to a prince nymph, I hooked into two brown trout. The first was in surprisingly hard water, the second in a plunge pool.
 Beautiful scenery
 hard water for a brown trout.
 Fat, healthy fish!
